    ''One of the most successful clubs in the past decade''. This is circular logic as your success has been entirely due to RA. When Ken Bates sold Chelsea, you were up to your eyeballs in debt due to overspending and just about a Uefa cup side. No point trying to justify a sugar-daddy, without him you'd be nowhere and you know it.


    PSG, Monaco, Citeh, Chelsea. Peas in a pod.



    PSG are about 40 years old and have won hardly anything in their history. Disgusting club.
    Bar the 2 league titles before 2011 they had 8 coupe de france, 3 coupe de la ligue and a cup winners cup in a 40 year period which is pretty impressive for a 43 year old club

    Apparently we've made a bid for Portuguese winger Bruma, who plays for Sporting Lisbon (signed him for Porto on FM).
    Anyway reports have been released stating he was involved in an apparent kidnapping attempt by members of Sporting Lisbon supporters' group.

    Now he's trying to have his contract terminated as a result.
    Don't see why we need a winger though.

    Bruma would be a pretty good prospect for the future

    Would have made sense a month ago. I guess we buy him, loan him out to somewhere in portugal or in england and see how he develops, he's not homegrown and wouldn't classify for it if we kept him so I guess it's a pointless signing just bar the fact that he's promising, young and has resale value. Maybe this is our clubs plan to benefit from fair play rules.

    Have you seen the age of our wingers and attacking midfielders? The signing makes no sense bar him going on loan, doing well and having resale value.

    I know that but I was just saying he'd be a good prospect. He'd have to go on loan though seeing as he would never start a game

    On a side note Chelsea seem to have a large following in Australia, with supporter groups set up in Sydney; Perth; Brisbane and Adelaide.
    Signing Schwazer makes good business sense, and improves our presence within Australia.

    Yeah I always wondered why we had quite a large fan base there. A lot of the Australians I met here support Chelsea, too.

    Has to be Mark Bosnich who made us popular there... :holmes:

    De Rossi rumours heating up which is a good sign. Rooney sent home due to a 'hamstring injury'. inb4 he joins Chelsea.

    If De Rossi comes, our we going to have a bench full of midfielders?
    Ramires, Essien, Mikel won't get a look in.
    Don't even think Mikel is going to go for a 16 million deal.
    All we really need is 1-2 CB's and a striker who can do job - Midfield is more than enough to compete if not win the title.
    In my opinion, I believe we have the best midfield by a distance with Luiz playing as a single CDM.
    Lukaku/Ba/* - up front would be lethal
    Defence needs to clear up mistakes and Ivanovic needs to learn to not go attack too often against good teams.
    I'm sure with the introduction of Terry back into defense the goals leaking in the league should slow down hopefully.

    Hahahaha, that has to be the best description of Vitesse we have xD. Well seems like Tomas Kalas has done a Frodo and destroyed the Ring.
    Probably, the battle is over but the war is still on. A moment of silence for Nathan Ake who is next in line for this perilous journey of doom...

    Saw Bruma in the u20, the clear standout in an extremely terrible Portuguese squad. I mean, they had Heskey's lovechild leading their front line.



    Bruma set up that chance iirc and he's technically sound and has trickery to his game. But damn man, this kid needs to learn a lot more and would end up ala Quaresma if he joins you guys. Reckon if he must leave Portugal, he should go to a mid table Spanish team.

    I think he'd do decent in the prem as well. Think he's best suited for man united if he wanted to go to a big club tbh I think he'd be a guy they'd want what with nani's contract situation and valencia's poor form. Spurs are in a similar boat, townsend has done well at QPR but they could do with another young tricky winger considering the way they play their game with fast wingers.

    Arsenal he's not really needed though with chamberlain coming in and arsenal needing to buy quality and not potential atm.

    A moment indeed. There are still more rings about here and each one of them has been tasked, it just so happens that Kalas was the first one there. A moment of thought goes to Gael Kakuta and PvA who have been on the journey the longest and have been thwarted at the Black Gate. Ake and Piazon may just be a glimmer of hope for all of Middle Earth.

    Oh God, I'm loving this, we can go places with this story line xD

    Tbf, we needed one more CB and with Kalas joining its essentially a new signing there. We only have 2 DMs atm in Romeu and Mikel and if rumours are to believed then Romeu is off to Valencia on loan which only means we have Mikel so getting De Rossi makes sense.

    Marko van Ginkel or Josh McEachran can be Aragorn, who is born for greatness and one day will be King (assuming Lamps was the old king and they need a new one to guide them through)

    Romeu to Valencia on loan confirmed.
    A good move for Romeu. Surely we must be close to signing a CDM then, hopefully these cash + wallace on loan for De Rossi rumours are true, Wallace is only 19 and we're now pretty stacked at RB with Azpi/Ivanovic/Kalas/Essien all able to play the position so a loan would be good for him tbh.

    Yep. De Rossi would be absolutely perfect. Just gotta get Rooney for our strikeforce too then we'll be set.

    I don't suppose you've (or anyone else here) seen Wallace place before? I have no idea what he's like but reading elsewhere some seem reluctant to let him go. Wonder if he would come under the homegrown criteria -- we signed him when he was 18 I think so if he spends 3 seasons with the club that means he's homegrown? (Has to be from 16-21, I think).

    Rooney would be excellent, although I doubt he'll end up leaving United. Signing a new striker would be a luxury, I think we'll be fine without one.

    Unfortunately I haven't, I've heard he's decent with potential to be really good though, seems Roma have been after him for awhile. Not too sure on the homegrown front, he turned 19 in May, and I'm pretty sure spending time on loan doesn't count as being at the club so I doubt it.

    Seems like we've made an 8 million for Bruma.

    Am I the only one who doesn't actually want Rooney?
